"Right now, JAC has systematically mastered the electric motors ’three core technologies including battery pack, electric motor and electric control, as well as the electric steering, electric braking and energy recycling, moreover, JAC has realized breakthrough in the battery thermal management, intrinsic safety management technologies."One of JAC responsible person introduced.
For JAC, Volkswagen is world famous brand with deep technology basic and rich marketing experience. At the beginning of the project, both parts started the cooperation from the marketing research, products design, experimental verification and cost control. Taking the first joint venture car as an example, JAC provides the platform, Volkswagen sends the experts for technical appraisement, and both parts will exert their efforts to improve the identical problems, finally Volkswagen will be responsible for the products ‘acceptance.
"There are several innovative points in this joint venture cooperation: Firstly, jointly creating a new brand. On the basis of the new energy, they have created a new and internationalized brand. Secondly, jointly establishing a new system. The joint venture will gradually form an independent, complete and world-class research system and technology innovative ability system, however, at the early beginning; the research institutes will mainly establish its products’ research management ability. Thirdly, jointly establish new channels that are to deepen the innovative business model, build win - win market model. Fourthly, jointly explore new areas. Search the possible exploration in mobile travel, vehicle interconnection, large data, used cars platform, remanufacturing."that responsible person said.

Nextev Company uses the global internet thinking model to choose the world leading, fashion fields, while through the cooperation, JAC has spanned to the advanced manufacturing trend, mastering the new materials, new technologies, and new progress, which is the achievements resulted from the cooperation with Nextev Company, and reflects the progress of the fastest speed."
